King County, WA just approved the creation of a permanent "gun buyback" facility. I understand that there are folks out there who inherit some old gun or are left with a broken clunker and don't know how to dispose of it. What I don't get is how they're so lazy they refuse to just take it to a pawn shop and actually get some money for it. Even the sleaziest pawnbroker will give you more than a $50 gift card for an old handgun.
They don't want them going into someone else's hands. They've been brainwashed by the socialists in believing removing them to be destroyed is something they can do for their own gun control.

Permanent means another group of government welfare bureaucrats taking more tax dollars.
Imagine working at a permanent facility. Earning good money to sit there and maybe interact with 1 person per week.

So,
With this "Gun Buy Back", are they admitting that they provided the firearms to these people in the first place?

After all, if they're "Buying Them Back", then they provided them in the first place.

Right?

I thought background checks and 4473s were needed to buy guns.
If you are buying them from a licensed dealer, then the ATF gets the record of sale.
But if you are buying from an individual, there is no paperwork involved. Unless you want a receipt of sale.

That must make the left leaners go nuts.

PS: You need to keep in mind that it might be stolen though. There is a hot underground market for that.

Looks like a lot of those gun were 3d printed. Probably non-functioning.

I have seen instances where a person cobbled together some non functioning, laughable excuses for firearms and turned them over for money. People have to take this stuff with a grain of salt. Most of those guns are non functioning, fake, or off brand crap. Do they want my old cross man air rifle my dad curb stomped and broke after he found out I was plinking birds, cause I’ll sell them that scrap for 75 bucks

They did one of these in Austin years ago. They were giving $100 gift cards to a Texas grocery chain ( HEB ). A bunch of us were intercepting the people bringing guns to be bought back & offering $110 cash. I scored a brand new Mossberg 500 for $110. When I was walking it back to my car, a cop ( part of the buy back ) gave me a thumbs up.
